PALMDALE (CNS) - A dispute that started at a Mobil station in Palmdale ended with a 7-year-old girl shot, a sheriff 's lieutenant said.
The car-to-car shooting happened on Wednesday, Sept. 4, near Sunburst and Stratford drives, shortly after two groups exchanged words at the Mobil station at Pear Blossom Highway and Fort Tejon Road about 12:30 a.m., according to sheriff 's Lt. Glenn Brandon.
Los Angeles County paramedics, who airlifted the girl to a hospital, said she was in critical condition.
Sheriff 's deputies said one group followed the other away from the Mobil, and shots were fired at several locations, Brandon said.
A sheriff's deputy later stopped a vehicle matching that of the shooter's, and three men were arrested in a felony stop, he said. The names of the suspects were withheld pending booking.
The wounded girl's name was unavailable.
Brandon said detectives found evidence at least three shooting scenes, and shells were found at 57th Street and East Avenue S. Evidence also was being collected near Regency Place and Essex Drive, he said.
Anyone with more information was asked to call sheriff 's deputies at (661) 272-2400. Tipsters can also call L.A. Crimestoppers at (800) 222- TIPs. All tips can be made anonymously.
